In order to demonstrate their Artist Pen’s precision and control, Faber Castell hired Singapore-based designer Chan Hwee Chong to create meticulous spiral drawings of three great masterpieces using their pens. He has recreated Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Van Gogh's self-portrait and Johannes Vermeer's the Girl with the Pearl Earring with a single stroke.
“As you can imagine, every mistake meant we need to start all over again. This project not only involved skill but lots of resilience and patience, much like a spider spinning its web,” the 33-year-old artist said. Mr Hwee Chong added: 'It wasn't as easy as we thought. We went through many rounds of trial and error, painstaking drawing the masterpieces in one controlled line, by hand.”
